The 14th February might mean Valentine’s Day to the romantics amongst us but for those who like to get out in the garden it’s the time of year when thoughts turn to being back outside, preparing the garden for the year ahead and seed sowing.
As well as it’s fascinating and eclectic collection of antiques and vintage pieces, Dairy House Antiques and Interiors, on the Dorset / Wiltshire border, has developed a reputation for sourcing interesting, quirky and practical items for the garden.
Whether you’re the type of gardener who likes to get their hands dirty, or someone who prefers to simply enjoy the surroundings of your garden, there’s something for everyone at Dairy House. From terracotta seedling pots, vintage tools, interesting shaped trellis, plant supports and zinc planters to garden furniture, sculpture and other statement pieces, this is a great time of year to visit the Antiques Centre to see what you can find for your outdoor areas.
There’s always the potential to find a Valentine’s or Mothering Sunday gift with a difference too. Debs Jeffery, owner of Dairy House Antiques, loves plants and flowers and this is evident with her displays of planted bays, olive trees and succulents, all of which are available to buy.
